Innocent Until Proven Guilty: Alabama Man Arrested For Stealing Bleachers

Videos by OutKick

A Mobile, Alabama man was arrested this week after officers spotted him dragging “a large set of stadium bleachers” through town with the help of his four-door sedan.

Michael McClellan, 60, was charged with first-degree theft of property by the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office after being stopped at 12:22 Wednesday afternoon. “It was just an unusual circumstance, police stopped him and determined he didn’t have permission to take them,” Mobile Police Department Cpl. Katrina Frazier told Lagniappe Mobile.

A Mobile parks department spokesman told the outlet that the bleachers had been relocated from a local park to an area where workers were preparing for a Martin Luther King Jr. parade. Workers watched McClellan take off with the bleachers and called the cops.

Stealing aluminum bleachers isn’t a new phenomenon. Google Search is littered with people stealing bleachers to scrap. But hooking up the bleachers to the back of a four-door beater and dragging them down the street is a whole different animal.

If you think this is impressive, don’t forget about the Florida man in 2020 who strapped a massive light pole to the top of his Toyota Camry.
